Kefar Kadum Protests Strangulation Of Village

The War of the Roads Palestinians Protests Strangulation of their village

On Saturday the 19th of February at 9-00 AM residents of Kefar Kadum will be joined by Internationals and Israelis on a march to the locked Israeli Gate at the entrance of their village.

Kefar Kadum and its four thousand residents are surrounded by the settlement of Kedumim and the Kedumim military Base. The settlement uses the main road to Kefar Kadum as its own. Since the beginning of the current Intifada the Israeli military installed a gate at the village entrance which they have closed periodically. Two weeks ago the gate was locked and the villagers told by the military that they would no longer be allowed to use the Road. Their Village has become a prison.

This Israeli strategy is wide spread throughout the occupied territories. Particularly in the area Israel plans to annex as the Ariel settlement block. More and more the roads that settlers have taken over for their own use are being closed to Palestinians who are left with round about agricultural roads as the only source of access to their villages.

Another example is the village of Salfit which serves as a regional center. Its main entrance has been confiscated by the settlement of Ariel and its residents have been barred from it for the last four years. An arrangement that now appears to be permanent. Fore more information:
